Hinchinbrook

Birds, barramundi and big-drop waterfalls are all on the must-do list when you visit Townsville North Queensland’s Hinchinbrook region, the southern gateway to the World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics rainforest.

Nature on tap

  • Take a guided tour of the Hinchinbrook Channel and land yourself a prized ‘barra’ – you might even spy dugongs and green turtles amongst the mangroves.
  • Channel your inner Robinson Crusoe while kayaking around untouched Hinchinbrook Island. Or spend the day trekking part of the 32-kilometre Thorsborne Trail, punctuated by sweeping bays and cloud-soaked mountains. 

Wet Tropics

  • Share the splendour of Australia’s highest single-drop waterfall, Wallaman Falls, with endangered cassowaries and friendly musky rat-kangaroos who call the area home.
  • Bask in a birdwatchers’ paradise in the TYTO Wetlands and finish your day with an introduction to Ingham’s Italian heritage with a hearty meal of homemade pasta.
